Free Book Reveals How the Family Can Protect Their Kids From Pornography on the Internet


Tulsa, OK (PRWEB) August 8, 2007

Victory Graphics and Media has launched a new family website called www.freemonthlybook.com.

Each month they will offer a book on a topic helpful to the family. The first family book to launch, “Protecting the Digital Family: Quick and Easy Steps to Safeguarding Your Family on the Internet” is available now for the family to take advantage of.

In this book the reader will learn:

How big the family issue of internet pornography is,
Methods to check the family computer for traces of pornography,
Steps to remove all traces of pornography from the family computer,
Processes for allowing access to family “pornography free” permissible websites,
Strategies to block pornography from ever being viewed on the family computer again

The book covers topics including: Family Internet filters, family safe browsers, discovering and erasing pornography tracks, blocking pornography and other questionable material from the family and how to set up the family computer for safe “pornography free” internet surfing.

Protecting the family from pornography is one of the greatest challenges facing the digital family today. The growth of online pornography and the tricks peddlers of online pornography are using are overwhelming. It is no longer necessary for the family to be actively seeking pornography on the internet. Online pornography peddlers are aggressively attacking the family. Unfortunately, the emerging digital family is unaware of how to protect their family from the growing world of online pornography. This free book breaks this important family issue down into easy to follow steps for eradicating online pornography from the family life and preventing online pornography from ever infiltrating the digital family again.

Victory Graphics and Media intends to link www.freemonthlybook.com to an online family book store currently under development as a way to draw attention to the low cost family oriented books they publish. This concept has the potential to be a powerful and effective way to distribute family related books to end users without having presence in the traditional family bookstore.

What Makes Strong and Nurturing Families?

What Makes Strong and Nurturing Families?

Human beings have the longest dependency on others than any other living creature. We spend our lives in relationships, either toxic or nurturing. If the family of origin was not supportive and loving, we either repeat that pattern or look for other mentors and teachers.

Can you visualize a closed fist as opposed to an open hand? That is the difference between a closed and dysfunctional group and a learning, sharing and supportive one. The closed one is turned inward and harsh in judgment and expectations. The open one is welcoming and willing to help others as well as receive help.

Closed or Open Families

When we look at families, either of birth or deliberate connection, we admire and wish to emulate, there are usually a number of variables present in the makeup. One or more are usually absent from a closed or dysfunctional family organizations.

Open communication. The members are free to express opinions and make mistakes without losing love. They talk often and freely express feelings and emotions. They look for new ways to encourage each other and don’t just do what has always been done. The family members ask for help, forgiveness and support when it is needed.
A sense of “us”. A family is made up of individuals with different needs and abilities. Those individuals form a synergy where the sum of the parts is greater than each one alone. The members of the family know that someone “has their back” and will support their endeavors.
Boundaries and guidance. Boundaries and rules of society are not to keep others out, but to keep us safe by understanding the limits of acceptable and unacceptable behavior.
Mutual respect. Strong families provide a sense of shared history and traditions. The family actively teaches and models morals, ethics and respect for others.
Affectionate and loving. Parents and families who only touch by pushing or pulling do not recognize the value of a loving and kind pat on the head, hug or kiss. Words and actions of love and acceptance are experienced daily in strong families and then radiated out to the world.
A sense of optimism and hope for the future. Families that are connected are strong in good times and bad. They model positive coping strategies and recognize life lessons in occasional failures.

Can you and your family change, even if negative patterns have been established over a long period of time? The answer is a resounding yes. The more we know, the more we grow. If your family or group would like deeper assistance than is offered in articles and books and yet not as expensive as therapy, please Google the phrase “Discipline Yes Punish No.” This can assist you in your journey.

Thank You for Your Important Work

I applaud you for seeking help with improving your relationships. Enhancing the bonds of understanding between individuals is the first step in building better families, neighborhoods, communities, areas, nations and a world of peace and harmony. Isn’t that what we all want?

They insist they are just a group of friends, yet they funnel millions of dollars through tax-free corporations. They claim to disdain politics, but congressmen of both parties describe them as the most influential religious organization in Washington. They say they are not Christians, but simply believers.

Behind the scenes at every National Prayer Breakfast since 1953 has been the Family, an elite network dedicated to a religion of power for the powerful. Their goal is “Jesus plus nothing.” Their method is backroom diplomacy. The Family is the startling story of how their faith—part free-market fundamentalism, part imperial ambition—has come to be interwoven with the affairs of nations around the world.
